Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

An unforgettable experience
We had an amazing overnight cruise on Gokul's Lake Ripples houseboat. The boat is really spacious and much more luxurious than we were expecting - we had a four-poster bed, and a walk-in shower as well as a bath in our ensuite bedroom. On the upper deck we had a shaded observation deck with sunloungers, and a large dining/sitting room with windows all around. The sitting/dining room and the bedroom were air-conditioned.The crew were incredibly hospitable, welcoming and friendly, and the cook was keen to cater to our every need - our lunch, dinner and breakfast were all excellent. Cruising the backwaters in this houseboat was a magical experience we will never forget.

Magical boat in a magical land
This was amazing! I took my young daughters here for two nights near Christmas and it was remarkable from start to finish. The food was out of this world and we even stopped a few times dockside to pick up fresh tiger prawns or just-caught crab. The staff is the most welcoming and amazing with kids (they even let my six year old drive the boat for a bit!). The bat and bird life is even insane, to boot. Can't recommend highly enough; truly a magical experience in the fairytale world of the backwaters.

A perfect trip on a beautiful houseboat with sumptuous food and the best people on board
Went on a day trip [11am to 5pm] on the backwaters in January 2020. This was my second houseboat trip with Gokul cruise, the first one being 2 years back. I was so satisfied with the previous trip that I didn’t hesitate to contact Mr Udaya Kumar again when we planned to revisit kochi. And I must say that this time the experience was even better. To enumerate the pros: • Very justifiable and reasonable rate for the quality of service that was provided. Must say that Mr Udaya Kumar is very professional and honest. I made part of the payment in advance for the booking and rest on the day of the trip. There were no hidden costs, and the arrangements he made for the trip was impeccable. • A very well maintained and well furnished houseboat. The interiors were tastefully done. This time around we had a four roomed , double decked houseboat • The rooms, bed linen, toilets and the common seating area, sofa, etc were very clean • All the ACs were functioning which was a great relief considering that Allepey can be very hot even during January • A clean and hygienic kitchen with sumptuous food added to the charm of the trip. We were overwhelmed with both the taste and the amount of food that was prepared for us right from the welcome drink to the lunch and evening snacks with tea and coffee. Cons- NONE I must thank the bhaiya who steered the boat all through the day sitting out in the blazing sun, the bhaiya who cooked for us ( must say he is a superb cook). Sorry for not being able to recall their names. A special thanks to Mr. Anup who took care of us throughout the day and who became almost a part of the family. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY AND FOR MAKING OUR TRIP MEMORABLE .

Wonderful Backwater Cruise and Overnight Stay
My wife and I stayed on the Gokul One Bedroom Houseboat in December 2018. There were just the two of us and 3 Crew - The Captain, the Chef and an Assistant. We embarked at 1200 and disembarked at 0900 the next day. Overnight we moored near a small backwater village. The experience was one of peace, relaxation and tranquility.. The food was superb, We had lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast all of it typical Keralan and delicious. Gokul does have just one other Houseboat, a Four Bedroom big sister to this one. If you want beers, wines and spirits it is best to bring your own. There are literally hundreds of Houseboats on the Keralan backwaters and the standard of them varies considerably. The Gokul ones are towards the top end of the market and worth paying a little extra.
